The Forsyth County Water Treatment Plant is capable of producing up to 32 million gallons of safe, clean drinking water every day.  This treated water is then supplied to many of the homes, businesses, schools, and citizens of Forsyth County.

Water Distribution and Storage

On average, over 14 million gallons of water are delivered to Forsyth County Water and Sewer Department customers each day.  That is over 5 billion gallons of water in a year!  Raw water is pumped from Lake Lanier to the Forsyth County Water Treatment Plant where it is treated to drinking water standards.  After treatment, this water is delivered to over 65,000 customer accounts through more than 1100 miles of water distribution pipelines.   

The Forsyth County Water and Sewer Department also maintains 3 elevated storage tanks, 5 ground storage tanks, and 2 clearwells which combined hold almost 35 million gallons of water.  This storage capacity ensures an adequate supply of water is always available to meet customer demand as well as firefighting needs.
